VERBIAGE FROM THE STATE OF NEW YORK:

-Use of trained dogs to chase geese is among the most effective techniques available today.

-It is widely used to disperse geese from golf courses, parks, athletic fields and corporate properties.

-Initially, chasing must be done several times per day for several weeks, after which less frequent but regular patrols will still be needed. 

-This method is most practical where the dog and handler are on-site at all times

-New York’s resident Canada goose population numbers close to 200,000 birds, with nesting documented all across the state. The estimated number of geese breeding in New York has more than doubled since population surveys began in 1989 (See Below).
